On my last day in Russia, I thought I was hard done by having to wait for 2 hours on the Russia side of the border with Latvia. I also got an answer to the question that's plagued me for years - what happened to all those East German 'female' athletes after the GDR ended? I now know what's happened to 2 of them - they work at the border crossing!
But after I got through I saw all these trucks queued up on the Latvian side! And this is only about 2/3rds of them - there was a huge line at the border, then as I drove along it ended - or so I thought - but it was just a gap. Then I came across this second line and started filming. I was doing a good 70-80 km/h along this line, which makes it at least 4 kms long. Poor truck drivers! At intervals along this line, there were portaloos - the mind boggles about what would have happened if there weren't. I wonder just how long it took these trucks to get through the border.
